Only certain video files getting Published to Roamio

Context: I want to watch video files on my Roamio.

So, using Tivo Desktop (paid version), I have specified a folder on my Win7 64 PC hard drive to share videos with my Roamio.

If I go to
http://www.hd-trailers.net/
and choose a film, follow the links and save a trailer, I get an .mp4 file that I copy into my published folder. This is what the file specs are:


Within a minute or two, this file is available on my Roamio, I can play it, it works great.

With me so far? Ok, now if I go to
http://www.demo-world.eu/2d-demo-trailers-hd/
and choose a Dolby 5.1 trailer and download an .m2ts file, here's what I see:


Since I know Tivo doesn't support .m2ts, I then use kmttg to convert the .m2ts file using these default settings:


Then, I copy the resulting .mp4 file into my published folder. For reference, this is what the converted file shows:


However, and here's the problem: this converted file never appears on my Roamio. It's as if Tivo Server and my Roamio just ignore it. So, the question is, why?

Any guidance here greatly appreciated.

Thanks

It appears the file has DTS audio that Tivo does not support.

Cant tell from the limited data you presented. The file name indicated it was dts.

Please post the mediainfo data for the file that will not transfer. The windows properties data is nearly useless.
